A Must See!!!
17 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Projectionist is a dark slice of cinema. No doubt about it. Russ Russo gives an emotionally cerebral and breathtaking performance. Here he portrays a man quietly being torn apart by deep-seated inner demons like no other actor can. Russo has an acting style that utilizes subtle nuance and body movement so naturally it's a joy to watch and both build towards a perfect picture of a tightly wound man who's hurting beyond measure.

Evocative, Provocative, Sensational!

See this movie!

It will be an experience you're not likely to forget!
